THE FLOATING CRAE AT MARE ISLAM), SLIGHTLY SMALLER TH
One of the most Interesting pieces
of machinery construction or assemb

giant floating crane, the largest in
the world, which is destined for ser
vice at Pearl Harbor, Is being erect
ed on the pontoon which recently ar
rived here in tow of the tug Hercules.
The job 13 a big one, and it will be
eeveral months yet' before the com
pleted crane ' will be ready for busi
ness. . ' ,
The crane, which was turned , out
by the WellmanrSeaver-taorgan Co.,
of Cleveland, Ohioand which is- be

that company's engineering represen
tative, Mr. Case, will be the largest
in the world when completed. It
will have a lifting capacity of 150
tons, and the contract price totals
The pontoon, on which the super
structure is being erected, was built
by the Union Iron Works, and is in
itself a giant affair, incidentally prov
ing one of the most unwieldy tows
that was ever brought from the
Coast to Honolulu. It is to be fitted
with Diesel oil engines, which will
drive the dynamo which supplies the
current for the hoisting machinery.
These engines are of the latest type,
and have been used with great suc
cess on similar machinery. In the

event of anything going wrong with
the generating machinery, however,
the crane will be fitted with the very
latest model Edison storage battery,
capable of holding enough Joice" to
run the crane for seven hours. These
storage cells are a great ; Improve
ment on the old model, costing just
twice as much but being more than
twice as efficient

SALAMANCA HUNTS HIS
PAY AS BAND MEMBER
Lazaro Salamanca, veteran member
of the Hawaiian band, arrived in Ho
nolulu by the Siberia yesterday after
a visit to his old home in the Philip
pines to enter upon a course of trou
bles. Salamanca appeared bright and
early af the city hall today to collect
what he thought was money owing
to him from the municipality. He said
he had four months' salary due, and
Auditor Bicknell was enlisted In the
search for the missing pay. The au
ditor couldn't find out what Salaman
ca's status was, so he appealed to the
municipal encyclopedia of informa
tion, commonly known as Bert Riven
burgh, secretary to the mayor. Rlv
enburgh overhauled his mental card
index and brought up a statement that
Salamanca was given, four months'
leave of absence on half-pay, or two
months' pay in all. Lazaro seemed to
have figured that he had the full time
coming and when last seen was still
on the hunt for his musical rights.
Salamanca has been a member of the
band for more than twenty years and
recently decided to take a leave of
absence to visit ""his former home In
